Okay, when I said "the end of the upcoming weekend," as the targeted time of the completion of restoring the full-sized pictures to availability, i hadn't taken into account that the following day(today) would stretch the limits of boredom, for me. So, I got all my uploading and reprogramming done today. I uploaded 442 megabytes of data to the website, which encompasses everything that's been posted in the pictures section since the beginning of 2005.
This site now occupies about 800 megabytes on the server where it sits, leaving me with a little over 2.5 gigabytes of free space to play with. I will leave that for now, but if enough public outcry is generated, I could be compelled to upload some older pictures, too.
